Herefordshire Cricket Ltd have been helping clubs with their operational plans to gain local authority grants for when the game gets underway again. “Although recreational cricket all over the country has been put on hold for the foreseeable future, we are well aware that clubs in Herefordshire will still have plenty to do,” said HCL operations director Steve Watkins. They will still have grounds and buildings to maintain while there will still be bills to pay. “Many clubs in the county have benefited from Herefordshire Council’s grant scheme which has eased their day-to-day financial concerns,” added HCL chairman Ian Macklin. “We would urge others who have not yet contacted the council to do so as they may find this to their advantage. This is supplementary to the England and Wales Cricket Board’s recent launched Emergency Loan Scheme and the Return to Cricket Grant Scheme. Clubs should contact staff at the cricket office if they need assistance with either of these.” Anyone who wants any assistance with any cricketing matters should contact stevewatkins@hereforshirecricketltd.co.uk or Richard Skyrme on richardskyrme@herefordshirecricketltd.co.uk and they will help in whatever way they can.
